Welcome to the Verne Visitors Group
What's happening? The Verne has Closed.
The Verne closed as an Immigration Detention Centre in December 2017.
Therefore the principal purpose of the Verne Visitors Group - to visit those detained for 'immigration' reasons - no longer applies.
However the group has decided to continue for the time being, in order to raise awareness of unjust detention. A particular focus has been the campaign for a time limit for detention.
There are several web sites that give information about the campaign against detention, and these are on the Links page.
